Tsu Surf - "Long Way From Home"
Rick Ross f. The-Dream – "Money Dance"
T.I. – "Flicka Da Wrist (Remix)"
Twista – "Can’t Make This Up Freestyle"
Young Buck f. BJ The Chicago Kid - "It's All On Me (Remix)" [Prod. Dr. Dre]
it is NOT easy to create coherent images while riding that pattern, let alone tell a story across three verses. #3 is some shit: vivid repercussions, mayne. good work, mr. fiasco.
Lupe is too dope
I kinda like this track and or this song and or these lyrics!
if Lu retires who will fill the void...
LUPE IS HIP HOP
Thanks, Lupe. Thanks for being true to your beliefs and trying to do something about the violence in Chicago. I hope you reconsider from retiring, hip hop needs people like you.
Great Song,Wish The Hook Was A Litle Bit Better Though 4/5
Lupe kills it! Dude makes you really listen to his lyrics and analyze them!!!!
Dope Song, Lupe ALWAYS brings true HipHop!
He stopped being dead prez and started bein lupe. NOBODY can put together some socially relevant hip hop that you want to keep listening to like Lupe.
cant wait for the album!
Passion for lupe, hope the elite don't change him like most of hip-hop/rap
I hope Soundtrakk is on this album.
5 stars. Why? Because he's one of few actually using his platform to SAY something. He's not doing this for money. He's doing it to wake people up. Gotta respect the man for that
this dude could have been so great
Somebody help me with what hes talking about...Im lost. Bitch Bad is beasty ho
this is cool lupe the man, the beat reminds me of this up and coming producer De Elusive made it....not sure but the style sounds similar to me.

LUPE VS COMMON
Absolutely awesome sone from Lupe, I'm always baffled how in the sea of certifiably retarded lyrics MTV & BET bathes us in that Lupe keeps releasing these metaphorical themed songs. It's nice to hear hip hop.
I really like this track.
Get at they neck my man. Competition is always appreciate on my side
lupe is too good for the rap game. waay under appreciated.
Gotdamn That Nigga Lupe Done It Again.. Lsmbo Angels > Mercy
9/25 I'm going to my local bestbuy and buying all the copies of F&L 2 I see, then hand them like candy so people have food for thought.
lets start a movement
I'm going to do the same!!!
Wow that is an awesome idea lol. Hopefully brain dead fawks don't confuse it with coasters.
D'z wat hiphop iz missing da best da greatest of all time story telling
Lupe d'z shyt iz 5STARZ
lyric'z 10/10 delivery iz MOS Moment Of Silence
lupe how da hell u came up witt d'z song
lupe da best rapper alive lyric'z speech-lezz ....
nigga close ur fuckin mouth itz lupe hav sum respect
lupe dis shyt sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lamborghini Angels
damn...torn on this one bro. um...lupes delivery is always dope. But fuck, i dont know what this nigga wants me to take from this. Like seriously...what the hell should you feel after this? I work hard and came home after a long ass day and now this nigga wants me to think MORE? Damn dogg...can I get one day off from thinking about how fucked up this world is? Shit, lemme listen to some Waka now.
Lupe makes all sorts of music but this right here is classic. wanna listen to wankstaz go a head
....say what u want about lupe appeal to the masses....but as an artist who spits bars that have been thoroughly thought out with every verse for every song....its just a breath of fresh air.....massive respect a true HIP HOP ARTIST...he is the "Public Enemy"of this lame generation.....musically speaking....
Lupe makes bold music, I respect him for his art. But I don't always want to hear heavy introspective music...Making the choice to listen to him is like making the decision to watch the evening news or read a Salaman Rushdie novel as opposed to listening to Kanye West or reading The Coldest Winter ever, sometimes I just want to be entertained. I don't believe he should "dumb it down" there's a place and audience for everything. I occasionally get in one of those moods when I want to listen to something meaningful, challenging, different...Just not enough to put it in heavy rotation. I love his delivery though, the song is fire. Just don't expect to hear it on the radio...
should get satellite radio.
another nigga tryin ta enunciate everything smh gettin hella annoying
so what you didn't like 2pac either?
(I'm no way tryna imply Lupe is comparable to Pac, they got their own lanes)
he is one of the best
The lyrics (except the 3rd verse, that was a little too out there) were on point. However, for some reason I can't really get into Lupe's music. Doesn't do anything for me.
Maybe because I was trying to give him another try?
Dickriding is unhealthy, by the way.
Then y did u listen to this song, or any other song for that matter?? DUMB MOTHERFUCKA
Lamborghini Lamborghini Mercy Angels
Lyrics, content and BEATS! Lupe is close to being the best ever...
This is the old lupe fiasco
its funny how the 3rd verse bothers people but when ross, wayne, meek mill, etc writes 3 verse killing, raping, stealing, lying people.. ppl say "shits hot"
LOL, I know right! Lupe would destroy the ones that you mentioned easily...
i can't vibe to this song. the beat is crazy, but the third verse is too much. we already know about child rape, no need to detail it like that in a song for godsake. i really wish he didn't do that. 3 stars for that misjudgement
@Anonymous I'm with you on that. Lupe wants to strike nerve, get you thinking. I love how people get bothered by these verses but in the countless rap songs about sex and violence they don't blink an eyelash.
The fact that you have a strong reaction to his music means he's doing his job well.
yeah that line was unnecessary. It reminded me of the aweful song of eminem rapping about being raped by his dad, just something I was hoping to forget about.
food and liquor the original was way too good for a second version. it all went down with LASERS for me...its just not the same skater,hip hop beat
right? after the whole lasers thing i just can't get into Lupe's music like i used to back in 06-10...who knows this album might be good but for some reason i just can't seem to vibe to any of his new singles even though they were pretty decent
Your favorite rapper couldn't make this song.
Unless your favorite rapper is KRSI, Pac, or Nas.
pac did this when lupe was in school. "part time mother" "papaz song" and plenty more. pac was starting a revolution lupe is just trying to get on the radio fuckboy
Pac couldnt do this
but the question is how many of you will buy? yall the reason he struggles with the label. it's ok to support good music. think different
yes he had issues with his label because f n l and the cool both hit platinum... then lasers came out and it took until january of this year to go gold. get it straight before you go jawwin
LUPE TURNT UP NIGGA
F&L2 gonna be a fuckin problem
Lupe, the rapper that makes you pull out wiki pages & RG references
Exactly! Lupe is on some other level lyricism...
This song is defintely dope as hell. vintage fiasco on this one
Lol at people not understanding this song. Its not as super deep as you make it out to be. Very good song anyways but yall gotta listen to some more real hip hop
The realest nigga in the game. Real hip hop he bout to the second greatest rapper to live, I know bold statement first is Tupac.
Lupe 1 for me.
lupe is the truth
This is tight!
Lupe Fiasco is reviving the root of hip hop. He's like a modern KRS-One
CHICAGORILLAS!!!! WE GOT THISSSS SHIT LOL L.E.P MICK HALSTED LUPE COMMON KANYE TWISTA SHAWNAA NEWSENSES SLY P CAP ARRO AND FREEE THE REAL CHIEF BUMP J WE MO GANGSTA AND WILL OUT RAP ANY OF YOU OTHER FAGS AND CUNTS THATS IN THIS INDUSTRY CHI CITY LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Nigga you gay
one of the few rappers saving hip hop
Awesome Song. Highlighting current issues is bit risky but the way Lupe convey the message was incredible..!! -- THIS IS WHAT I CALL TRUE HIP HOP -- F*CK FAKE RAPPERS --
it like a video game song
not too shabby
this is why hip hop is still alive
Nice track. Lupe is one of the best lyricists in the game.
bitch bad was oke freedom was great and this is awssom perfect promo for L&Q.
This shit is exact quality of F&L #1!! Keep yo head up Lupe!!
Happy to hear Lu is solid as always!
LUPE IS CRAZY FNF UP FOR LIFE
Correctional Officers stand up! LOL!
damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn lupe fiasco ..now im excited for this album
This song is so deep and powerful. That it takes more than one listen to understand it. If you think this song sucks then he's talking about you. The Lambo Angels are people who value materials and all negative aspect to society. Its also a warning shot to rappers who displays these messages to the youth and others.
I think that's more of a production problem. His beats aren't the same a the Cool or FnL1. I thought this song was amazing though. He needs to hookup with Primo and Pharell again.
Agreed. I think he might have lost his passion for it a little bit. Musically, F&L and The Cool were as good as they were lyrically.
Yeah i got that but in my opinion he is failing to get his message across in a musically sense. The Cool had alot of songs with great messages and the music sounded good along with it. The last two joints he missed his mark musically but the message is dope none the less.
This is kinda boring, yawns
amazing song, that's all that can be said.
8,000+ plays in a day! At least 6 of em came from me tho
Why does it always sound like Lupe is off beat?
i hate niggers
Then why are you alive?
if you don't think lupe is nasty, there is something wrong with your ears, and you should probably kill yourself
if u a real nigga then u would pull your dick out and jack off while u watch lupe speak, thats real , like any real nigga i got turned on but not in no gay homo way, on some real shit and started to stroke my dick when i felt a buldge in my pants get hard, and just stroked my dick until i felt all the cum spray out, thats real shit right there from seeing a real nigga speak made my dick hard and i had to take care of that for real
LOL the nigga wants a yellow shower every morning after YMCM done wit this queer fuk
Yo man. Keep that shit posted on the young money news pages. They love to hear that type of shit. Furthermore you just might get lucky and wang may hit you up. From the back end that is.
Be a Lupe fan but not a queer man wtf wrong with you man? God damn whats wrong with mothafuckers these days! I miss the good ol' days when homos got killed and exiled!
wow...stop lying to yourself. major homo
Young Nas mixed with Big L
#SICK F&L2 is going to be a f***** problem.
With a circle on the floor he compels them to be pure
Pulls the beast out of his heart then impales it on a sword
Writes a prayer on some paper and then he nails it to the door
Just the good of you may enter by the mercy of the lord
these lines got biblical reference but anyone think on the last line he was talking about Kanye/G.O.O.D music (good/mercy)
P.S. Lupe killin it yet again
definitely not..dont accidentally start shit lol Lupe has respect for his chi town bro..just obviously doesn't agree with him all the time.
I sure did. Stop hating.
WOW. NO. No he was not.
some1 call tha amberlamps i just had a wack attack curtesy of lupe fiasco
that last verse is legit
boss track. Lupe is one of the few niggas who can speak consciously to the mainstream crowd, hip hop is 6ft deep underground and Lupe's tryna show its hidden face. you dumb motherfuckers who are hatin on this song need to hit up rapgenius or somethin and take a leap nigga! some hatin ass busters are probably gonna talk about the beat as if that's the only fuckin thing rap is about.
apparently this song is blowin up in south africa, real niggas recognize. Lupe at the end of his road will be top 5 dead or alive
the beat does matter but it's not the only thing that matters... when you complain bout the smallest shit pertaining to it when it got super nice lyrics then you got a problem, and it's clear where your tastes lie... taste is trippin balls then
The world revolves around everybodies opinions and tastes!
"the world doesnt revolve around your opinions and tastes"
Neither does it revolves around yours.
hip hop is alive and well to me. you dont speak for the rest of us nigga.
the beat matters, this is music, not spoken word poetry, if a nigga dont like the sound of the song he not a hater..he just a music fan with a certain taste. get over it nigga. the world doesnt revolve around your opinions and tastes
lupe off the top betta than yo favorite rapper written
kendrick yes but hopsin? hopsin isnt better than anyone outside of ymcmb
false. kendrick over lupe. hopsin over lupe.
lupe sick yo this album gon be hot as sht
Good song but still feels like its missing something. I dont hear it and think instant classic. The singles are getting better and better by each release though, so lets just hope form follows function is a home run.
you're not supposed to think instant classic.. usually.. this is a song that grows on you, and you learn to appreciate it once you go through the lyrics. once you look at the messages in the song, then it can go either way for you
This is ill 5/5
lupe sucks. suck a dick
You suck. Go suck a dick.
This album seems to be shaping up to be a great one
Ah this is more like it for the Hip Hop masses.
underwhelming...its just missing that spark
I see diamond flooded demons.
Icy, diamond flooded demons.
It's entirely possible but, at the same time, I think we read a bit too much into lyrics when the rapper is known for being lyrical.
I see diamond flooded deamons.
Icy, diamond flooded demons.
real hip hop...going to be a great album
LUPE IS ON HIS WAY 2 GREATNESS.A VIDEO WILL REALLY HELP THIS.
Tight! Some mainstream music that actually forces us to think a little bit. It's been a while. This is definitely needed right now
Tight! Some mainstream music that actually forces us to think a little bit. It's been a while. This is definitely needed right now.
lupe always brings it
damn this bitch ass nigger can rap
lupe str8 beastin on these niccas
He def is the greatest of all time. No doubt.
My butthole is dripping with anticipation
The beat doesn't suck, but it's annoying as hell. I had to turn it off half way through, could barely listen to anything he said. Overall, gave it a 3; not something i'd play again.
lupe is back
Lupe Fiasco is a Lil Wayne wannabe. smh... Lil Wayne raps better den diz old ass nigga. YMCMB MMG we run da rap game. swag
you sound stupid
nigga i would slap the shit outta you, then fuck your mom with you watching if you ever say some shit like that again, kill yourself and all of the wack ass young money folks fuck all of them weak ass niggas and bitches,you on they dick so hard on every song and they don't do shit for you, gtfoh you a wanna be troll with no life, i hope you get ran over the next time you cross the street and a hobo high on bath salts eats ya fucking face off you fucking, NOBODY in that crew is worth 2 dead flies smashed, i hope you and all those fuck niggas die slow
...can we be done with the voice warping and filtering? I mean come on...the first 50 zillion times it was kinda different. Now it's just stupid.
NAS & LUPE hottest rappers in the game atm!
The third verse is disturbing as fuck, which makes me like the song even more. Someone needs to keep pushing the boundaries.
Production could be better perhaps, but it is alright.
Lyrically, Flow everything is way better than anybody else in the game right now.
For this album Lupe seems to be thinking out the box a lot. Not only are the first two verses complex he is great on this song. You could cry about how you find him boring or the fact no one cares but the truth is that Lupe is one of the best.
this is yoga flame!
shit was coo...4/5 but damn maybe I'm expecting too much because "The Cool"
this is wack as fuck
fuck the HATEEEEERS 5 srars fo sure goooo lupe we got u
HATERS SUCK MY LONG ASS BONE!!!!
crazy lyrics but his beat selection puts him in that sale out 3 percent position that he was talking about.
you're right since this is radio friendly, a club song, he repeats himself 20 times, rhymes the same words, says random shit, its simple and everyone can understand it, its a pop song, and every bitch can shake her ass to it
hahaha all you sensitive niggas on here who constantly feel the need to stick up for your fav rapper, need to just listen to the song and not scroll down to the comments. Truth is a lot you niggas is just bored and want to argue for no reason, I hope most of you are females catching feelings over what someone says about this song, yea the song is cool for what it is, okay there is substance. But what the fuck is this song gonna do in reality, not a got damn thing, just cuz Lupe raps about righteous shit don't mean its gonna change your way of living, stop making him out to be some type of prophet or something, its just music at the end of the day. And all you little teenagers on here, trust me once your about 20-21 this music starts to fade away, y'all should spend your energy finding a career instead of crying on a hip hop site.
im calling bullshit on audio engineer.
@REALTALK haha, congrats on that career bro. I just saying you too on this website, so don't be dissing others for posting as well. Also, I do agree that this won't stop the bad/evil in the world. However, this may save individuals from joining into this activity. Even if one person is helped by a song, it is worth while. The world will always be screwed up, but an individual can be helped.
@Truth, For 1. where am I arguing? Where am i crying? obviously i hit a soft spot because you felt my comment was directed towards you, or you felt you fit the description. hahaha i got a career audio engineer, which is why i keep my ears to the music, but i never get this music twisted with reality. Like I said this song will not change the world and neither will Lupe. and thats Real Talk. Nigga shouldn't you be in school right now?
We're the females with the feelings? Your chili is running real hot bro. You're sitting here crying about us talking about a song. You're also a hypocrite. We are arguing and you ain't? Seems like you have a beef to me. Also, according to your words, you need to find a career as you are arguing & dissing us on the hip-hop site. REAL TALK bro, it seems like you got a personal problem. Everyone, keep REAL TALK in your prayers as he needs a career.
STOP THIS BULLSHIT DUMB NIGGA OR I CHOKE YOU WITH MY FAT ASS COCK
shit is garbage
You're probably a YMCMB faggot.
mind can't comprehend? it's okay i got a new based god track for you.
you boneheaded dumb fool
Love this. "Lamborghini Angels" symbolizes those who say that they praise God, but in reality just do it for money. Like the priests who rape & scientists/psychologists who destroy one's thoughts, they do it for the money. Hence, they are all diamond flooded demons. Genius song with substance & truth.
What did I just say? Fucking hell. Not synonymous. As in, not interchangeable terms. Derivative, yes. That's to say, don't label "scientists" with your personal problems with psychologists.
psychologist are scientist. Check their required undergrad course work.
Scientists and psychologists are not synonymous, so please don't use them as such.
Hell yeah 5 stars easily. This gets me amped for that Sept. album.
cool track....thumbs up....but i hope lupe doesent turn into some of Nas previous albums where his lackluster production drags down what his trying to accomplish lyric wise as fas as the overall product is concerned....
People who obsess over beats are hilarious.
Seriously, it's fucking crazy to think that when someone listens to music (especially hip-hop where the artist is just rapping) they would actually want to enjoy the music they're hearing... What an imbecile.
Lupe back doing his thing. Even though he is being bias on religion I can still dig the song 5/5 no hate.
I don't think he is criticizing the religion itself, but the ones who take advantage of it
great song, but damn he needs better production, only lupe can turn such a terrible beat/sample into fire.
Its a great song, with subject matter that is open to a lot of interpretation. That is what I have gathered, that is all.
Lupe is back.
honestly the cool will forever be his magnum opus...i dont know what happened since then...put you on game, the coolest, gold watch, little weapons, etc. are classics....these songs can't get more 3 listens from me...3 stars
I Don't GIVE A FUCK What NOBODY ELSE SAYS or THINK about This TRACK...STRAIGHT UP, Cause To ME, This Shit Is PURE FIRE!!!
Anybody hating on this song is a DAMMMMMNNNN LIE!!!! perfect..just kinda short.
I most ppl here are missing the point. It clearly a great song becuz look at the number comments in such a short time. I was on Rapgenius last night for hour chatting about its meaning and the fact that so many ppl get different meanings from it only speaks to Lupes genius. He makes us think. Isnt that what good hip hop should? 5/5
I couldn't agree more.
i'm sorry this isn't 2 chainz rapping about the same shit as every other mc
Another song to enjoy until the album drops. Glad that this dude unlike a few other mainstream trash puppets can make you think.
Only a retard could bump this shit... booooo
go ahead and blast that waka flacka, stay off hip hop sites and especially off the comments section.
Reprhase: More like a retard would have a problem understanding it.
If this went over your head go to rapgenius.com tells you what the lyrics mean.
I was just about to post the link to that website. The lyrics are so complex and have such a deep meaning. I've listened to it several times and I'm having a hard time grasping the concept. Again, this is poetry at its best and there are several angles that this song can be dissected. I can guarantee you that 99.5% of all hip hop artists couldn't write a masterpiece like this.
oh my dayz this is soooooo wack! i will never support an artist who has disrespected Pete Rock a.k.a Soul Brother #1
Get Pete Rock's dick out your mouth
Only the most G rappers sample themselves in a song. Much props to Lu for speaking the truth.
same.....snare........pattern..........as a milli.......cant......................listen
I haven't physically bought a album in 15 years, but I cant wait to break that streak to support a album/artist that is actually worth buying.
1st and 15th!!
Appreciate these unapologetically noble lyrics.
Some people these days, I swear... It's obvious it's selective since he identifies himself with a religion. And you're a fool if you believe the same cases of sexual abuse is not found in your own religion, Islam especially and I'm not talking about 1400 yrs ago. With that said, great song Lupe- he's brave enough to tackle the issues that he does...
How do you know the person who brought that up even has a religion (me)? The point is: if religion has any worth, by it's own accord, it is the values that it instills. 1400 years ago has nothing to do with it if the case is to do with the apparent PROPHET of GOD! If it's a normal man, then yes. But this is supposed to be the spokesperson of God.
You have better morals than any of your God(s) does.
and smart enough to code the messages in his lyrics. cosign.
Nice track....lupe killin it. We need more of this type pf hip hop
tbh the lyrical content and flow is quite good but im just not feeling the hook or production
Poetry at its best. First and second verse has diverse interpretations which I think Lupe did on purpose. Reminds me of the last spinning scene in 'Inception'.
Themes of religion, child molestation, rap, war, brainwashing all merged up in one whirlwind of bars. Lupe is definitely the man. 5/5 with no hesistation.
Lyrically it sounds like Lupe is at his best on this track, the problem i can see here is that the content of the song touches on issues some may not want to hear in their music. Some may prefer a more party or stunting orenitated song and others may prefer a more lyrically story telling.
The problem is just preferences i can see why people wouldnt like this song because some of the lyrics may seem depressing, however hip hop started off story telling and this is what lupe is trying to achieve i think he nailed it
The real problem is that people have no problem being inundated with lyrics that glorify dealing, murder, and misogyny. Maybe you have to go against the grain to recondition the collective corrupted mind. Props the Lupe.
damn lupe finally back :D
Lamborghini Angels refers to a culture which admires and worships materialism.
Listen. Who cares what the song is about. It is unlistenable. It is repetitive, too high pitched and not harmonious at all. Its just not enjoyable to listen to. fuckin write a book if its about the words. No one is going ot bump this song. And I used to be a HUGE lupe fan. Until he fell the fuck off. THe cool wasnt even that good. Give me a break. Stop dick riding someone whose washed up. Add him to the list of 50 cent, TI, Lil Wayne and others who USED to be good.
Lupe has flows for days....
I completely agree. Dope lyrics with wack flows and beats don't equal good music.
"The Cool wasn't even that good"
well that's all I needed to read. nigga's ignorant.
"Write a book if its about words"? So why not just rap the alphabet to the best beats that you can bump to...oh wait, some already do.
tbh i thought the cool was better than food & liquor and im sure alot of people thought the same. Don't compare him to wayne and 50 because he is lightyears ahead of him. Compare him to eminem and jay-z...they have both fell off but can still put out atleast decent music and the odd great song occasionally
"Write a book if it's about the words?" Really? Get off this site and go listen to the radio and find something to "bump to." That's not the point of this song. If you're too thick to at least get that, then you probably should just stick to listening to Wocka Flocka, seeing as the words don't matter
Decent track. For those 2 Chainz fans out there I'll break it down for your dumb dudes...
This song is talking about the materiality of current rappers including Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Second verse is talking about the morality surrounding a lobotomy of mentally insane people.
It also addresses Catholic paedophiles in the third verse and US troops who pissed on the dead Afghan bodies.
It is specifically talking about them but it's referring to those worship money like Kanye, Jay and Ross.
No, it's not talking about Rick Ross, Kanye West & Jay-Z. It didn't say that so stop conflating Lupe's views with yours.
Since pedophilia was a theme on the 3rd verse, why not mention Muhammad while he's at it? He was married a 6 year old then fucked her when she was 9.
"65:1 O Prophet, when you [and the believers] divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed waitingperiod and count the waitingperiod accurately . . . 4 And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet. As for pregnant women, their period ends when they have delivered their burden. (Maududi, vol. 5, pp. 599 and 617)"
I said, implicitly. Not as an explicit commandment.
The Quran does NOT condone sex with pre-menstruating girls. That is a fact! It is not allowed.
The Age of Aisha (R) at the time the Prophet consummated the marriage is not known exactly. Some scholars say it was 12, some say it was 9. But the fact remains that when he fulfilled the marriage, Aisha (R) had started menstruating.
It is a SCIENTIFIC fact that girls used to gain sexual maturity sooner back then, specially in rural areas.
Don't spread ignorant lies without trying to gain knowledge.
Okay. What about the Quran's implicitly condoning having sex with pre-menstrual girls? What about it explicitly condoning beating your wives? There's not point in pointing at other religions because I'm talking specifically about Islam here.
Actually sir, not all sources agree with about Ayesha's age, Bukhari's Hadith were not collated until 300-odd years after Muhammad's death. Other sources give Ayesha's age as being 19 and some even twenties, its all about what you choose to believe.
2: Also the custom of taking child brides was a part of Middle-Eastern culture back in the day.Aka arranged marriage. The Jews practiced it as well as many of the other nations in the Middle-East and remember too that Mary of Nazareth's age was probably around the 12-14 mark.
No, sir, you "go read something". Why is religion immune from criticism? Why is the fact of Muhammad and Aisha's marriage off limits? Especially in a song that discusses pedophilia.
WTF you talking about man...if you dont like the song b/c your education level is that of a 2 year old then say so, but no need to start dissing religions.
It's not a lie, you idiot. His third wife Aisha. And the Qu'ran condones sex with pre-menstruating girls. You haven't even read it, have you?
you lyin mothafucka....i'ma muslim....all what you said are fuckin lies.....why the fuck would you say something like that!!!...you're a disgusting bastard..>:O
diz old nigga is a fail. Lupe Fiasco can not rap... he has no flow or substance. stop bitchin and go retire yo old ass. he is garbage! he cant even skate. buhahahah. Lil Wayne skates better, raps better and looks better den diz old ass nigga. swag
Dude.....Lupe is nowhere near old. Him and Wayne are pretty much the same age. And he can't rap? That's like saying Kobe can't shoot.
kinda boring...no creativity at all
i only listen to real hiphop but this is kinda boring im sorry...
niggers always jumping to conclusions...i only listen too real hiphop but i still think its kinda boring,
you prolly didn't even listen to the song if you said some shit like that, im sure you think Rack City and Faded are a masterpiece then. Real Music dies because of ppl like you
@wack rap critic: Lu & kendrick are overrated?! fuck outta here - best two rappers out there right now.
when an opinion is obvious bullshit thats where the respect ends you braindamaged faggot, if great rappers like Lupe bore you, then just jump in front of a truck and splatter the ground, the world doesnt need people like you. we need a cultural genocide, people who hate on good rappers and artists should be murdered and wiped out from existance
People should respect others opinions. He thinks they're boring and overrated. That's HIS OPINION!!! I agree on him being boring. I swear the lames in this site have to all be 15 year old wanna be thugs from the suburbs. Reading the comments on her is like reading a book a retard wrote. Nobody can take constructive criticism without calling the person a HATER. So fucking stupid. This site is losing the little credibility it ha with the suckers who post on here
Best song i've heard from Lupe in years.
This guy is so overrated it's out of control. He's lame and boring. Yes he has lyrics, that doesnt always mean you're good. Add Kendrick Lamar to the overrated list also, cat puts me to sleep. I'm not a "hater" or whatever you Internet thugs call people with an opinion on this site. Rap is on life support for real. Nas said hip hop was dead, nigga is right, he's the only one putting out a good album all the way through with some replay value
Young money fan right here, possible Nas stan, good rappers bore him apparently, dude, swallow cyanide, people like you is why excellent rappers cant get respect in the mainstream
You act like you have to be a genius to listen to this guys music. Talk about ignorant? You sound like the ignorant one. You can't take his opinion and build your own without getting upset. If you disagree with him that's cool, say so. Asking what land he's on? Your life must really suck getting mad at a comment on the worst hip hip site on the net. Get a job, get a life, get some pussy. It might help
the only thing u said that makes sense is that nas is putting out good music, but seriously lupe BORING??? nigga what land are you from? nigga gtfoh with that shit that nigga is a beast on the mic, and if he puts you to sleep then you obviously need to educate yourself more,smh if ignorance is bliss you must live the life.
Lupe is the truth, this song hits on so many different levels 5 Stars
Lupe is a beast, but couldn't agree more with the statement above...
amazing song, powerful message inside the wordplay, Lupe wins again
Finally! Lupe puts out 3 consecutive great singles without caring about what Atlantic thinks or does. For sure I'm coppin Food & Liquor 2. FNF!
It's a good song. But I find any criticism of religion is selective on his part since he still identifies with one himself.
Since pedophilia was a theme on the 3rd verse, why not mention Muhammad while he's at it? He was married a 6 year old then fucked her when she was 9.
Sorry, didn't see your second reply. Yes, I agree with that, but as I said, I was being facetious.
I was being facetious regarding it's inclusion in the verse. And are you fucking kidding me? Of course it still goes on - not with the same prevalence as priests fucking little boys. "Deflowering" LMAO. You should be a politician with the you can spin rape.
But....I agree, there are people who do terrible things in the name of Islam (not talking about "terrorists") look at how they treat women in Pakistan and Saudi. Lupe is obviously being biased with his criticism because he still identifies with the religion, you have a point you just gave a poor example.
My point was never about the truthfulness of the religion, but your poor juxtaposition of catholic priests raping helpless little boys verses Muhammad's deflowering of Aiesha. I would see your point if Muslim men were taking 9 year old wives today, but that's not the case.
Also, the age has only ever been disputed between 9 and 10. Not 13.
Because he was apparently the prophet of fucking God! The man that Islamic writing, practices and morals are based. Either fucking children was always wrong (in which, why wasn't Muhammad informed by this God?) or God changed its mind on the whole fucking children business (which isn't very Godly). I vote for the 3rd option: Islam, like all other religion, is bullshit.
Does cultural/historical context even matter to you guys? First of all you're regurgitating the whole Muhammad/pedophile thing. She was 9 when she was married to him, the relationship didn't turn sexual til she was close to 13. It was consensual and 1400 fucking years ago. How can you compare that to Catholic priests raping little boys in the 21st century?
Um.... I've been anticipating this song and i'm blown away and confused. LET'S LISTEN AGAIN!!
Lupe is 3/3 for these singles.. 4/5
3.5 Starz ...Subject matter on point as usual ..Will go over a lot of peoples heads
Bring on the trolls , and dumb coons moaning about not being able to dance to this in the club .... Or how much better ymcmb etc etc
I knew this would be ass before i even opened the page and played the song... this guy hasn't had 1 really good song since the cool
whats ironic is someone called hiphophead is hating on a song with real lyrics and messages, someone should Trayvon you on the streets
Goodmusic??? lol, ironic
just slit your wrists you fucking faggot, you obviously dont know shit about music, just go die somewhere
